Whether you’re already a Mill Valley Lumber Yard devotee or have yet to check out the historic property that Matt and Jan Mathews have transformed into a multi-faceted community gathering space and retail and foodie destination, we’re gonna let you in on a little secret: it’s nearly full!

Stacy King’s Lulu Design Jewelry opened there in May, followed by the relocation of Once Around moved from its downtown space in July, as well as the opening of Watershed Restaurant from Ged Robertson and Kyle Swain that month as well. Also in July, Mad Dogs & Englishman, an innovative, creative bicycle shop that debuted in 2018 in Carmel, opened at MVLY. That array of businesses joined an ever-burgeoning roster of MVLY tenants that started with Molly de Vries’ Ambatalia and Gayle Nicoletti’s Bloomingaylesand later added Serena Armstrong’s FarmHouseUrban, Suzy Ekman’s Makers Market, Amy Lowery’s The Edit, Chelsea Hutchison’s BOL Superfood Cafeand Paige Mycoskie’s Aviator Nation.

That’s a lot to digest, both literally and figuratively!

Makers Market’s slate of monthly (second Saturday) Outdoor Markets continues on August 10, spanning most of the MVLY property with 15+ independent creators, artists and makers and offering the perfect moment to check out all that MVLY has to offer. Makers and artisans will be showcasing their wares, including jewelry, handbags, clothing, furniture & DIY pillow painting, leatherwork, ceramics, glassware, soaps, body care and more.
